    We are getting biggest storm since 97 and the metro area is shut down.
    On yesterdays news they were showing roofs that had collapsed, several at gas stations. Well one of them had a customer at the time, a truck, the guy wasn't hurt. So when they show the front view of the truck-it was a plow truck.
    Its been real lean for snow removal for several years here, this is the first real money maker. So even though he's lucky to be alive you got to feel bad for the guy, insurance deductible, lost income, disappointed customers.

    BTW-don't know who it was, just pictures, no interview.

    Good thing about the Denver area is that being a mile High, you will melt out a whole lot quicker than my area would with that much snow!!!!

    No Snow,

    The joke here in the east in the snowbelt areas is a dusting can be from nothing to 6". Look out the window and be suprised. Was watching the radar yesterday and last night and it was neat to see the snow stop as it was hitting the great divide.

    Howard in Leadville said 6" there but the Plow Babe was seeing over 2'. Hope you enjoy cleaning out. Now you know how Buffalo felt in the storm last year.

    Thanks for the picts Guys. LongO don't think the car is going anywhere for a few days.

    Jerre
